Crock Pot Turkey Spaghetti with Whole Grain Pasta

I love making this Spaghetti…..it’s so flavorful. I recently made this when my brother, sister in law and nieces came for a visit. My brother insist ground turkey doesn’t taste good when making and whole grain pasta forget it. So I thought if I don’t tell him that it’s Turkey and Whole Grain Pasta he may change his mind.  This Spaghetti did just that. Since it’s a winning dish I thought I have to share it.

Ingredients:

1 Box of Whole Grain Spaghetti Noodles

3 Jars of 24 oz Spaghetti Sauce ( I love Newmans)

3 lbs of Ground Turkey ( I prefer Organic)

1/2 of a medium onion

1/2 cup of green, yellow & red peppers

Thyme

Sea Salt

Oregano

Mrs. Dash

Fennel

Black Pepper

Paprika

Garlic Powder

Onion Powder

Herb de Provence

I start by prepping
Chop half of a medium onion and 1/2 cup of red, yellow and green peppers
( I purchase the frozen trio from Trader Joes’s….very convenient)

A tip I picked up the other day from Bethenny Frankel’s tv show…….to reduce the fat of your favorite dressing add vinegar.  I love Ranch……. added a little vinegar……just enough to thin it out.  It taste terrific this is something simple to do to have what I enjoy in a healthier manner.

Enjoy & Until Next Time
